The Age of Television - new book

ISBN: 9781841501819

ID: 327868

At a stage of major change in the world of television (the coming of digital TV, multiple channels, mobile TV on cellphones) this book seeks to take stock of the impact of the advent and presence of television on daily life over the past fifty years, or slightly longer. The author takes as her standpoint, or rather places at the centre of her analysis and considerations, the human experience and the way in which the medium of television has radically changed it. Connection; mobility; plurality. The discourse developed in the various chapters of the book focus on this triad of conceptual categories, which govern the most important ways in which television can effect a transformation at the level of experience. It can establish connections between individuals and distant events; encourage the formation of 'imagined communities' on a varying scale (worldwide, national, local or based on a common identity); create enabling conditions for travel to distant places and for vicarious and 'imaginary' journeys; and function as a genuine multiplier of opportunities and of forms of indirect social experience, in the sense of 'pluralising' the worlds of an imaginary life. The three categories in turn flow into the category of 'imagination', perceived as the big engine that drives modern mediatized society – television supplying ample fuel for this purpose. 'The Age of Television: Experiences and theories', is in its own special way a book of theory. Each chapter draws on classic concepts and theories from international television studies – from the flow to televised ceremonies and cultural imperialism – but without any undue reverence. The book is written with students in mind and thus undeniably conveys a pedagogic message: the author seeks to demonstrate how theories are a means of learning that is at the same time indispensable and flexible, open to criticism and to reworking in a new context. The logical and coherent structure of the book and its systematic articulation around a central nucleus of well defined concepts make it a very useful text for university courses. Yet it is written not in the style of a manual, but rather as a critical essay; and its original approach makes it also interesting and appealing to a scholarly readership and the cultivated general audience.

[EAN: 9781841501819], Neubuch, [PU: Intellect Books], Performing Arts|General, Performing Arts|Television|General, BRAND NEW, The Age of Television: Experiences and Theories, Milly Buonanno, At an evolutionary stage in its history, Buonanno's "The Age of Television" analyses the impact of television on daily life over the past 50 years, concentrating on both the concepts and theories of the medium.As television threatens to intrude upon our daily lives more than ever before, through cellular phones with broadcasting capabilities and thousands of new and previously unimaginable channels on digital TV, "The Age of Television" takes a careful look at the impact of this media form on modern life. Milly Buonanno here analyzes the way in which televised entertainment has radically altered human perceptions of place and time, multiplied opportunities for indirect social experience, and fueled the collective imagination.Drawing on classic media theories but offering a fresh look at television's dominance of Western culture, this book provides an optimistic perspective on the possibilities of the small screen.It includes a foreword by Horace Newcomb (University of Georgia). It is translated by Jennifer Radice. It offers an analysis of how television has affected and modified our daily lives. The original approach appeals to scholarly readership.
